I love denim. Especially old denim jeans/overalls the kids/Russell/me have outgrown/displaced the knees, etc. I have been saving them since the boys were little. I didn't realize it I was such a packrat until I found all these tiny pockets. :) I am so glad I saved them though - I guess this could be called a memory quilt. I think of all the "remember whens" when I see certain overall pockets. The material I got from my mother-in-law. I cut various colors (mostly reds and blues) into 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2 , 3 and 4 inch squares with pinking shears. I sewed them on the non-pocket squares for color. Russell loves this quilt. He can't have it. I don't want to share. It will be warm. The quilt itself probably weighs close to 5 lbs. I have a hard time lifting and maneuvering it. Yep - it will be warm alright.
